About Us

Carrie DeBoer, owner, loved real estate from an early age but couldn't see herself as a real estate agent. She obtained a BA in Professional Writing and used it to write grants and proposals for non-profits until the economy had a downturn. A few years later, she learned about real estate transaction coordination at a networking event and knew this what she was meant to do. She loves real estate, troubleshooting, systems, and seeing people get into homes.
